This dress was finished at Double Wars XVI (2005) and I wore it to one court at that event. Wearing it showed a flaw in the construction - namely the front closing principle. With it laced close the closed skirt did not show up to best advantage and in time for Visby Medieval Week 2005 I split the skirt down the front and had finished a shirt to wear underneath it. The shirt still needs ruffs, and the kirtle needs hooks and eyes in addition to the lacing.
The Dress Diary details the construction of the entire outfit.
